Body transformation training blog part 3

I’m four weeks into my training, and getting stronger and more ripped by the day. After two weeks of full-body conditioning workouts and a fortnight of two-workout body part splits, my routine is about to change again.

The plan for weeks five and six involves a three workout split, targeting my chest and back in one session – which I’ll be doing today – my shoulders and legs in the second session and my arms in the third. Focusing an entire workout on just two muscle groups is going to be tough, but my strength has been steadily progressing throughout the first four weeks of the plan, so I’m confident I’ll be able to handle it.

Things are moving along nicely in the kitchen too. My skin folds are continuing to shrink, which means I can enjoy carb-binge days on the weekends to help fuel my training and muscle growth. Eating large quantities of clean carbs such as brown rice, oats and rice milk has never seemed so appealing!

Watch the video to see how I get on at my first chest and back workout.
